Othello and Desdemona are in love with each other until Iago spreads lies about Desdemona. Iago tells Othello that Cassio slept with Desdemona and Othello starts to experience jealousy for the first time. Othello tells Iago he is confused and wants proof of Desdemona’s infidelity. Iago makes up a story about how he shared a bed with Cassio recently and Cassio was talking about Desdemona in his sleep and kissing him. Iago gives Othello more proof when he informs Othello of a citing of the spotted strawberry handkerchief with Cassio. Outraged, Othello orders Iago as the new lieutenant and he has three days to kill Cassio. To himself Othello says, “...Minion, your dear lies dead, and your unblest fate hies. Strumpet, I come.” (V.i.36-37).
